Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, webOS lives.

From the bits I’ve seen of LG’s new smart TV plans, I’m loving how they’re repurposing webOS. It’s rare to see refreshing interfaces on tvs (and set top boxes).
I also agree with Dieter Bohn’s assessment:

Earlier I called webOS on smart TVs “a smaller ambition for a bigger screen” and after seeing how webOS works now, that assessment still stands. LG hasn’t solved any of the truly thorny problems in the living room. But executing well on a smaller ambition is still to be commended
I was rooting for webOS back when HP was using it on their Pre phones, and I’m still a fan.
